Hello world! What is happenin’?!
I’m very happy to introduce my latest project and idea:
Well, to be sure, the blog isn’t the idea, but it will be used to tell you about it in the next few rounds (and probably more 😇) of development.
So What’s Up?
I’ve had what you can say is an epiphany of sorts with my general direction in life. It wasn’t sudden, though. It took a lot of work and contemplation to get here.
In fact, you could say that I have been in a creative funk for a bit now, and I am embarrassed to say for how long. In an effort to jumpstart my creativity, I fell back on an old faithful: website development. That has led to me utilizing Hugo and producing this here blog to communicate my life to you.
PRETTY COOL HUH. 😁
What’s the Blog, Dawg?
Interestingly enough, I have been thinking about putting together my own blog for a while now, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on how I wanted to do it. As I said there has been a lot of contemplation on my part and I landed on some “pillars of interest” in my world.
My thought was to make a blog where each post could be divided into one of the following categories:
- Life (philosophy)
- Etc. (all the rest/remainder)
There have been so many times I have wanted to post something or a quick thought outside of 280 characters allotted on Twitter. Plus, Twitter is so noisy. A blog is basically a filtered view of important thoughts provided by a person or brand. I find Twitter is where the commentary/feedback occurs.
In any case, I finally was able to connect everything together when brainstorming my new idea and it culminated into the production of this blog.
Expectations of Schedule/Content
All that said, I am not entirely sure how often I will actually use this sucker. I wanted primarily to make it to get myself some personal development and creative momentum, which I feel I have accomplished.
But also, I now have a medium to utilize if I so wish. So, we’ll see how it pans out. I am not a big fan of setting expectations only to have them unfulfilled down the line.
The other consideration is that if I am spending time blogging, I am not developing my latest idea, The DragonSpark Experiment.
What is The DragonSpark Experiment?
Hey, glad you asked. 😆 It is an idea that I put together that feels legitimate. Or at least, feels legitimate enough to pursue it. It has a business model and everything, and the more I think about it, the more excited I get about it, so it’s been fun and is the primary motivating factor to establish this blog.
Getting back to not setting expectations, I do not like talking about details before developing them as I feel that jinxes things a bit. However, I will say that this idea squarely fulfills the Business, Art, & Technology pillars listed above. As far as Life, well, perhaps that will make itself known as time progresses.
Welcome Aboard, Dawg!
So, there you have it! I am aiming to keep this article short and sweet. Thank you for any interest you have in this sucker, and I welcome you aboard to The DragonSpark Blog, Dawg!
